About Melissa Hutchinson
Nick and Missy moved to New Bern, NC in 1988. Nick was originally born in England and led a very interesting life in many different countries. Missy was born in Md but always loved the southeast. After graduating from the Univ. of MD in 1983 we moved to Florida together. In 1988 we decided to sell everything and live on our sailboat, cruise the Bahamas and Florida, and then cruise up the East Coast. We got to NC and haven't left.
Melissa Hutchinson purchased this cottage in 2004
Why Melissa Hutchinson chose New Bern
We live in New Bern and saw that it had so much to offer visitors. There were hotels in the area but very very few vacation rentals. We prefer to stay in a home when we travel and so assumed others would as well. So we built Sandy Garden Cottage in 2004. And our wonderful guests have loved it here as much as we have!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We can't express who much we enjoyed Sandy Gardens! I love it when a place is "better than expected." It was perfect for our gathering in New Bern!! We loved having coffee overlooking the Neuse River in the mornings and sipping wine with the sunset! You certainly have a gem of a place. Mark and I had a fun canoe ride (almost to the other bank) on a calm afternoon. We loved walking and meeting neighbors and friendly dogs! Sorry we never met as we decided to head home one day earlier to break up the long journey home. Hope you found the cottage in good shape as we tried to care for it as you do.
I am sure you will see the Kramer family again! Thank you again for sharing your piece of paradise!
ps- We really loved all your cute touches in the house. Martha Stewart could take some pointers! Also, the jigsaw puzzle took us 2 days to complete!
